The Texas Center for Actual Innocence (TCAI) screens and investigates claims of actual innocence made by inmates who are currently serving a prison sentence for a crime that they claim they did not commit. Inmates can write us at:

    Texas Center for Actual Innocence
    University of Texas School of Law
    727 E. Dean Keeton St.
    Austin, TX 78705

We do not accept cases by telephone or email, and requests cannot come from family members or friends. Requests must be made by the inmates themselves, and they must be made in writing. TCAI considers all requests from inmates who have claims of actual innocence, except those cases where the inmate has been sentenced to death. For assistance with a capital case, please contact:
